ISS flyover

Post  ColtsKurt on 7/31/2015, 8:14 pm

Just stepped in from watching the International Space Station track overhead from the west to the northeast.  Other than the moon, the brightest thing in the sky tonight.  Very easy to spot.
Very cool. clap

That was a nice one and it flew directly above me so it was as bright as it gets.

As usual the day I will have a camera I can trust will the same day I win the billion dollar lottery Rolling Eyes

It looks like I get several of the 6 minute ones the first week of the month.

Another direct overhead pass tonight.  Actually brighter tonight, as last night was a massive full moon…

Very cool and easy to track. While direct overhead, the brightest thing in the sky.  No moon at all tonight, so viewing was at its best.

Mother Nature… another job well done!

YES another clear night here (and too hot all day)

I get another 6 minute version at 11pm tonight.........be nice if that Moon was out of site.

Battery dead I guess in one camera and the video cam just shows black sky.
